Head’s Message
Dear Parents,
This August marks the start of a new session 2016-2017 where the students displayed renewed
enthusiasm and zest throughout the month. I welcome the students and urge them to strive for
excellence by remembering to continuously put up their best efforts in all academic and extra-curricular
activities as ‘We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.’-- (Aristotle).
We celebrated the birth of Pakistan and the profound struggles of a nation to achieve its separate state
with a right to freedom of choice and expression. The purpose of the celebration was not only to
inculcate spirit of patriotism in the young hearts but also to revisit the values and beliefs which led our
ancestors to lay down their lives for freedom. The event was celebrated through beautiful recitation of
national songs, soulful tableaus, and passionate speeches. The students’ heart-warming performance
was hugely appreciated by the audience.
An Essay competition was also held where the students were encouraged to display their knowledge and
express their love for our motherland by writing on the topics concerning the strategic location of
Pakistan and the unblemished sacrifices of our national heroes. I wish and pray that our new academic
session leaves many such unforgettable memories and provides opportunities for students to groom
their potential. Long live Pakistan! Long live Gulshan Campus B!
Regards,
Suha Kamil (Headmistress)
Morning Assemblies
Independence Day Celebrations and Tasbih
Recitation
The Independence Day activities were planned and
arranged at a very short notice 9th August being the first
day of the school and holding the 14th august
celebrations on 12th august was quick work done
expertly by our green house members. Students sang
national songs each group of performers was selected
from each level. A tableau on the Land of Pakistan was
also arranged by class 3-7. Provinces capitals Crops
Mountains ranges and cultural heritage was presented
in a very creative way. Hats off to the teachers for their
efforts.
Academic Moot 2016
The academic moot 2016 was held on Saturday 27th
august 2016. Campus B was given the opportunity
To hold the English and Urdu session for all the teachers
of Karachi and Thatta ( 3-8). The presentations covered
the features of the curriculum, the value based
integration with subjects, the main features of note
book checking, evaluation of curriculum, the paper
structure and the table of specification. The sudden
change of weather before lunch interrupted the
proceedings and brought an informative session to an
abrupt end.

Harry Potter And The Philosopher’s Stone
The story starts with Number 4 Private Drive about a boy called Harry Potter who lives in the cupboard under
the stairs of a house owned by Mr. and Mrs. Dursley with their overly spoiled son called Dudley. In the first
quarter of the book it shows how Harry begins to receive letters which are addressed to him, in his cupboard
and at the top of the letter a crest show the letters S,G,R AND H embellished with a snake, a griffin, an eagle
and a badger. Even though this alone sounds mysterious Mr. and Mrs. Dursley don't allow him to read the
letters and will go to any length to stop him. As the book progresses The Dursleys go away to a hut in the
middle of the ocean to ensure no letters can arrive, but at midnight (before Harry's birthday) a giant of a man,
later on to be recognized as Hagrid, bursts in and tells Harry he's a wizard! Hagrid also tells Harry how he came
to live at Privet Drive as his parents were murdered by the Dark Lord, Lord Voldemort. He also gives Harry the
letter he had been hoping for weeks it includes a letter to say that Harry will be attending Hogwarts School for
Witchcraft and Wizardry and a list of essentials for his year ahead.

Hagrid also informs Harry that he will have to catch the Hogwarts express which is located at King's Cross at
platform 9 and 3/4. When arriving at King's Cross Harry soon realises that there is no platform 9 and 3/4, or at
least that is visible. Then Harry meets what is going to be his second family, The Weasleys with 7 children, the
youngest boy being Ronald Weasley who will soon become Harry's best friend for life. When they arrive at
Hogwarts the first years wait to be sorted by the sorting hat. Harry and Ron are both placed in Griffindor to the
delight of the other Weasley children currently attending Hogwarts. (The other houses are Slytherin,
Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff.)
As the year goes on at Hogwarts Harry and Ron attain a new best friend for life by the name of Hermione
Granger and to the end of the year they have to face a battle against the dark Lord!

What tastes better than it smells?
What two things can you never eat for breakfast?
What can you catch but not throw?
What kind of room has no doors or windows?
What is the center of gravity?
What goes up and never comes down?
What has a single eye but cannot see?
What belongs to you but others use it more than you
do?

How can a clam cram in a clean cream can?
Send toast to ten tense stout saints' ten tall tents.
Can you can a can as a canner can can a can?
Clean clams crammed in clean cans.
Six sick hicks nick six slick bricks with picks and sticks.
Near an ear, a nearer ear, a nearly eerie ear.
On a lazy laser raiser lies a laser ray eraser.
Really leery, rarely Larry.
A black bloke's back brake-block broke.
MY MOTHER
MY MOTHER KEPT A GARDEN,
A GARDEN OF THE HEART,
SHE PLANTED GOOD THINGS ,
FROM THE START,
SHE TRUNED ME TO THE SUNSHINE,
AND ENCOURAGE ME TO DREAM,
FASTERING AND NURTURING,
THE SEEDS OF SELF-ESTEEM,
HER CONSTANT GOOD EXAMPLE,
ALWAYS TAUGHT ME RIGHT FROM WRONG,
SHE IS THE MAKER OF MY PATH,
THAT WILL LAST A LIFE TIME LONG,
I AM THE PRETTIEST FLOWER OF MY MOTHER’S
GARDEN,
I AM HER LEGACY,
AND I HOPE TODAY SHE FEELS THE LOVE
REFLECTED BACK FROM ME ,
I LOVE MY MOTHER
